How parents, children, siblings, cousins, close friends, grandparents and grandchildren use new technologies to remain closely connected despite distance, divorce, military assignment or longterm travel
On "60 Minutes," Mark Zuckerberg, the 23-year-old Harvard drop-out and founder of Facebook, mentioned that he has a running game of Scrabble going with his grandparents. So I decided to go onto Facebook and download the Scrabulous application and set up a game with my 24-year-old son, working on a cruise ship in the Carribbean, and my niece, a high school student in Massachusetts. I doubt Matthew will have much time to play scrabble from the ship over the next few weeks, but once he's online, maybe the game will go faster. Anyway, we'll see how it goes.
